I have a version of this boot from Rider in black cordovan: If you want a "sleek" cordovan boot, these are the type to get. I only wish this one I got had a version of Alden's double waterlock sole (I had to be very careful the first time wearing them in the rain - they are fine now)
Not the best photo, I will try to get some more tomorrow and will post in the non-Alden cordovan thread.
EDIT - Like NAMOR, I also wore black shell out on NYE, mine ended up in better condition though. They still need Mac Method, which I will apply tonight
